Stephen of 4orm worked with the Abeona Housing Co-operative as lead architect whilst at ARP Anthony Richardson & Partners. An installation at Swiss Cottage Gallery charts the journey of the individuals who participated in the development. Screenings of the accompanying film will be held at 3 location across london during February and March.
Stephen has recently contributed to Another Utopia, a project being carried out by the Abeona Housing Co-operative. A number of events are taking place over the coming months leading to the production of a film and an exhibition at the Swiss Cottage Gallery from February 23rd to April 5th 2015.
The project explores the squatting and short life housing movement of the 70’s and 80’s and the vision of those who sought to develop new ways of building communities through co-operative housing. Maybe there are transferable lessons in our current housing crisis?
Whilst working for ARP Anthony Richardson & Partners, Stephen was the project leader for several phases of the co-operative’s development along Fleet Road in Hampstead and the creator of the pre CAD/Photoshop drawing above.
